I wonder how many modern CEOs are privy to the fact that a well-fed and confident employee is much more productive than a dyspeptic and demoralized one? A good CEO should make it mandatory for every employee to enjoy the mealtime.
Actually, the key hiring interview questions should be: ‘Do you enjoy your meals at work? How much time do you spend on meals?’
I am not kidding. People who do not know how to do it are lousy workers: fearful, stressed out, poorly nourished and suffering from indigestion. They are irritable, depressed, and don’t know squat about productive work.
According to my family lore, one of my distant ancestors always tested his most important hires at the dining table. If a person had healthy appetite and appreciation of the meal, he had a better chance at being hired than the one who lacked those qualities.
So, the six figure question with perks is, ‘Do the employees themselves know that eating well and eating right is crucial for their productivity?’
